4 Lessons to Help Teach Visual Summary

By on September 21, 2015

This is the second month we are offering peer reviewed, teacher created skill-based lessons. We are happy to do this for our LiteracyTA Members. We want to provide great lessons teachers can use to teach the new state literacy standards. Although each lesson has an identified grade level, LiteracyTA Members can copy the lesson and change the grade level, subject area, and the state literacy standards and skills. Each lesson follows LiteracyTA’s 5-Steps to Confidence Reading process and highlights a skill in an effort to support teachers as they implement more literacy standards into their curriculum. This month we are focused on summarizing main ideas in a text. The feature skill is Visual Summary.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.

R1
Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; and cite specific evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
R2
Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
R3
Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.
R5
Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and large portions of the text relate to each other and the whole.
